Create Access & Equity for Your Spanish-Speaking Students

CCSS Library Baskets

American Reading Company’s classroom collections reflect the richness and diversity of the Spanish language and Spanish-speaking cultures.

Spanish Leveling System
  • Our expert library designers have collected every book in Spanish for K-12 from US as well as international publishers.
  • We’ve leveled each book on our native-Spanish leveling system, built on the way children learn how to read in Spanish.
  • We have catalogued the age and ethnicity of the main character, the genre, the topic, and if the title was originally written in Spanish or is a translation.
  • If the title was translated into Spanish, we’ve evaluated the quality of that translation. Only the finest translations are included in our collections.
  • Each basket is a carefully curated balance of authentic literature, high-quality informational text translations, and "pop" literature like Diario de Greg and Junie B. Jones to hook students on reading.

Evaluación del nivel independiente de lectura

The ENIL is built on the linguistic features-phonological, morphosyntactic, and semantic-authentic to Spanish. This assessment is responsive to the way these features shape the acquisition of literacy skills in Spanish in the areas of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. ENIL is suited for the assessment of both reader proficiency and text complexity in Spanish. Learn more.
